"The Winnipeg Blue Bombers will honor the most successful head coach in Bomber history when they unveil a bronze statue of "Bud" Grant outside of Investors Group Field this October. Grant coached the Bombers for a decade, from 1957 until 1966, winning four Grey Cups in that time and one CFL Coach of the Year award, before heading south to coach the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. Not only a Blue Bomber coach but was also a Blue Bomber player prior to coaching: He is the third winningest coach in all of professional football with 290 wins in the NFL and CFL combined; he is a CFL Hall of Famer and a Pro Football Hall of Famer." Not to forget also an NFL player, and NBA player as well. A truly remarkable man.

29 teams passed on Bridgewater

1

The Redskins traded their 2014 first round pick back in 2012. The Colts traded theirs in 2013. Neither team can be said to have passed on Bridgewater. On the other hand, the Seahawks traded their first-round pick, 32nd overall, on draft day. That pick of course went to the Vikings who drafted Teddy Bridgewater. Therefore, 29 NFL teams passed on Bridgewater (all NFL teams except the Redskins, Colts, and Vikings).

If you're interested in that sort of thing, this morning I will be on 1100 WZFG at approximately 9:20 AM Central time. I will be on Steve's Sports Saturday with Steve Hallstrom and Dustin Moore, and we will be discussing how to make plutonium using nothing more than the items under your kitchen sink. Or Vikings football. I haven't really decided yet. Regardless of the topic of discussion, hit the link above to listen to the interview. Or if you're in the Fargo-Moorhead area, tune your radios to 1100 AM at around 9:20 this morning!

"To be honest, I haven't seen it since I've been here. It's something new to me and I've gained a whole new respect for him because of that. He carries himself like he's been here four or five years, like he's started every game. It's unbelievable." -Greg Scruggs
